In pictures: there's a colourful new art installation in Covent Garden

Isabelle Aron

If you've been to Covent Garden lately, you'll have spotted that the Piazza has been covered in mirrors. As well as being a prime spot to snap a selfie, it's essentially a glorified building site hoarding, which is in place while they convert part of the Grade II-listed building into a new Sushisamba restaurant. Still, it looks nice. And now it's had a colourful makeover. 

Artist and designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac has made his mark on the installation with a load of brightly coloured clouds. From what we can make out, there are also some line drawings of people in white, including a Queen and someone called Keith. What's it all about? Your guess is as good as ours.
